- New York City
First off, I'm sure you're all wondering, 'Are these the minty glosses from the studio collection?' No, these aren't the studio mint glosses. These are the same formula as the ELF Super Glossy Lip Shines in the squeeze tube, but they have added extra sparkle and a new scent. I actually really love the scent of these. It's a really yummy, berry fruit kind of smell.
The quality of these are okay. They aren't overly sticky, but they do have a weird texture, the same texture as the super glossy gloss from the $1 line. These are really sheer. I really had no reason to show you swatches, because they all show up clear on your hand with just a bit of sparkle. But if you layer on three or four layers, you will get a color similar to the color you see in the tube. However, if you put that many layers of gloss on it can be a bit messy.
The price is, as always, an amazing deal. Five glosses for $4.99, you really can't beat that. Even if these are rather sheer, they can put over lipsticks to make them shimmer and shine, and like I said, I love the smell, so you can use them to cover the scent of an unpleasantly smelling lipstick.
Also, I found this kit at Target along with several other ELF Kits in cute spring/summer packaging. They even have some of the mineral collection available, which is my favorite line from ELF. I bought a few of the duo collections to show you guys and have those ready and swatched. They will be posted soon.
Overall, I think these glosses are good for the price. If you are looking for a sheer, shimmery gloss that smells fruity/sweet and is really inexpensive, this may be the gloss for you. If you are wanting a more opaque gloss and don't like berry/fruity smells, you will want to pass on these.
